Two people dead in United States beachfront shooting

Two people are dead, nine other people have been shot and a police officer has been hit by a vehicle across multiple crime scenes at Virginia Beach in the US.

One of the deceased was killed by police and the other, a woman, was killed in a separate shooting, according to a statement from the Virginia Beach Police Department.

An estimated eight people were shot at around 11 p.m. local time Friday (0300 GMT Saturday).

"What you can see is we have a very chaotic incident, a very chaotic night in the Beach", police Chief Paul Neudigate said, according to FOX 43 in Virginia Beach.

The eight surviving victims were all transported to hospitals with gunshot wounds ranging from serious to life-threatening, police said.

At a second location, there was another crime scene where a suspect "relating to the above incident" engaged with an officer, which resulted in a police-involved shooting. It happened while officers were investigating the original shooting and shots were fired nearby, Neudigate said.

No suspect information was immediately available.
